Sensing New Hampshire’s Streams and Rivers
PLYMOUTH — Learn about science and meet scientists discussing an issue of local interest and importance in a comfort¬able, community setting!
Clear mountain streams flowing from the White Mountains and powerful industrial rivers are hallmarks of New Hampshire’s rich natural beauty and cultural heritage. While our waters are of exceptional quality in most cases, there are still water quality and quantity issues. A group of people interested in water resources have been using water sensors deployed in streams and rivers across New Hampshire to understand water quantity and quality better. This effort, which draws on community volunteer monitors, has been active for one year. After this first year, we can begin to discuss what we are observing, what we have learned, and how it may help water resources management in the region.
Come grab some food and a drink and be ready to learn and ask questions. This is a casual setting; researchers will speak briefly about their work, but the majority of time will be used for audience question and answers. The event will be held Tuesday, Oct. 15, 6 p.m., Biederman’s Deli & Pub, 83 Main St. Plymouth, and the public is invited.
Presenters include Dr. Mark Green, Assistant Professor of Hydrology, Plymouth State University, Ashley Hyde, Masters Candidate, Environmental Science and Policy, Errin Volitis, Research Technician, PSU Center for the Environment.
